Re: Favorites have a .url extension
I don't know why everyone seems to have so many problems trying to get their
IE7 favorites in to IE8 or vice versa? Whenever I install or reinstall an
operating system, I always go immediately to C: Users> me and move the
location of my favorites folder to my exisiting Favorites folder which is
stored on a partition.
This works a treat! No messing around editing shortcuts in Notepad and
saving them as ANSI or anything! And you never lose all your favorites
either. It seems such an obvious solution that I don't know why more people
don't do it?
